Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Funk Flex, DMX (uh, uh)
It's Funk Flex, DMX (uh, uh)
It's Funk Flex, DMX
Straight Y.O. motherfucker

Now days cats and middleman, little man, ain't controlling shit (uh)
Talking 'bout holding bricks but ain't holding dick
Niggas talk real slick but that's about it
Soon as I see 'em headed my way, I cut 'em off quick (what?)
Must you beat me in my head every time I come through?
With shit like, "Everybody tells me I sound just like you" (damn)
But you not me, got me? And you can't live without me (uh-uh)
If I wasn't DMX, you wouldn't give a fuck about me (uh, uh what?)
Ain't about, "Dawg, I want to be just like you" (huh)
How about you wanting to be just like you?
You can do what I do, just in your own way
Shit, I dip niggas that ride dick every fuckin' day (aight?)
If you got talent, talent is yours, it can't be mine (uh)
And it take you where it's gon' take you, it'll be fine
Let me hit 'em with the rewind, do you and I'll do me (uh)
Truly you'll see how real you'll be (uh, uh, uh)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to is true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to, it's true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Ayo dawg, I got lyrics (uh-huh)
Ayo dawg, I got beats (word?)
Damn, is this the type of shit I gots to put up with in the streets?
Used to be able to walk, not have to talk to nobody (uh-huh)
Everywhere I go it's like I bring the whole party (damn)
It ain't about tryin' to follow or tryin' to be liked
But if we all see it through the eyes of the Lord, we see a light (c'mon)
Just let me get a hold of the mic and I'll teach you a little something (uh)
Lotta good things could go wrong because of a little frontin' (what?)
Express yourselves, be who you are
Mh-mh-mh, you're a shining star
You don't even know what you got inside
How the fuck you gon' find out? You keep wanting to ride (aight?)
Ayo, I ain't gon' let it slide no more, you're best to go for (uh)
What you know can't do you? Then what you flow for? (Uh)
You ain't gon' get there tryin' to be me, dawg
Look through your eyes (what?), See what you see

Do you 'cause what it boils down to is true (uh)
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to, it's true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you (uh)
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Like fuck it, you want to be me? Here's what you do (uh-huh)
Grow up neglected by both parents and still pull through (damn)
You gots to come up fucked up, get treated like shit (okay)
Then have your mother's new boyfriend smack you like a bitch (woo)
Turn into a killer but don't carry your shotty
'Cause the way it's goin' down right now, you gonna kill somebody (what?)
Get a dawg, walk the streets, learn what you need to learn (uh)
It don't have a cause but because you'll get burned (c'mon)
Rap for fifteen years without ever coming out
And be convinced that the world don't know what they talkin' about (aight)
Then get locked up every two years, for two years (uh, uh)
Keep it real, hold back all tears, face your fears (uh)
Become a man before your time, rap but live out your rhymes (uh-huh)
Let 'em know what's on your mind, then you'll get your shine (what?)
Due time, everything you dreamed will come true
But you won't be doin' me (What?), You'll be doin' you

Do you 'cause what it boils down to is true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to, it's true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to is true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly (oowee)

Do you 'cause what it boils down to, it's true
Do you 'cause you are held accountable for you
Do you, is that really what you want me to see?
Do you 'cause I'ma do me, truly

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
